This real-time pollution map will enlighten you on your city's air quality

This real-time pollution map will enlighten you on your city's air qualityAir pollution isn't always visible, but it's definitely real. To help us gain a better understanding of air quality around the world, BreezoMeter, an air quality analytics provider, is visually breaking things down with a new interactive air pollution map. SEE ALSO: Wi-Fi passwords from airports around the world in one brilliant map The map delivers real-time information on air pollution along with hourly forecasts and helpful weather-related health and fitness recommendations. Its data is drawn from "official air quality sensors" placed across cities that monitor airborne particles and combined with information on wind, weather and traffic conditions. By simply searching a location, users will be shown a color-coded map of the pollution level in the surrounding area. They'll also receive useful information such as carbon monoxide and ozone levels, weather forecast updates, and heath, sports and child care-related suggestions. You can use the map to choose the cleanest park for a picnic, a running route for your next jog or even review pollen levels to help keep your allergies in check. Image: breezometer "Today’s traditional air pollution monitoring methods include only annual traffic data, which doesn’t reflect the day-to-day changes residents see and breathe on their local streets," BreezoMeter's CTO Emil Fisher said in a press release.  "BreezoMeter’s newest algorithm serves as a massive research and development breakthrough, bringing air pollution data accuracy to a new and precise level, monitored worldwide." he said. Image: breezometer The company's CEO Ran Korber insists that BreezoMeter's map is changing the game. "Businesses and consumers previously had to rely on inaccurate and generic point data regarding pollution, a truly global health crisis," he said in a press release. So far, major brands like Dyson, Dermalogica, AccuWeather and Cisco integrate BreezoMeter's air quality data in their products, and the company hopes its map will help people better understand their surroundings.  BONUS: The first manned hoverbike could finally fulfill your 'Star Wars' dreams


US Supreme Court split on border shooting of Mexican teen

US Supreme Court split on border shooting of Mexican teenThe US Supreme Court gave a sympathetic hearing Tuesday to relatives of a Mexican boy shot on the border with the United States, but appeared split on whether they could sue the American border patrol agent who killed him. The thorny cross-border case lands before the Supreme Court with bilateral tensions running high over President Donald Trump’s call for a border wall to keep out Mexican migrants. At issue before the eight black-robed justices is whether the family of 15-year-old Sergio Hernandez Guereca has the constitutional right to sue the agent who killed him in American courts.
